Authorities said the street where the attack happened is popular with tourists.

A witness at the scene told the BBC that the van “was weaving left and right, trying to hit people as fast as possible.”

The attack occurred in an area of Las Rambas, a historic street that leads up to the City’s Central Plaza. A map of the street shows that a walkway runs down the middle while cars drives on both sides.

The terror group, ISIS claimed responsibility for the attack that happened less than two weeks after a pro-ISIS twitter account threatened to attack Spain, according to Rita Katz, director of the SITE Intelligence Group.

“There was loud bangs and people started running into shops,” witness Ethan Spibey told Sky News.
